This innovative food slicer from Microplane eliminates the need for a cutting board and multiple sized slicers! The slicer has serrated blades that cut 0.25" / 0.635 cm slices of eggs, mushrooms, grape tomatoes, shallots, grapes, strawberries, and more. To use, simply push down the top to keep your hands away from the sharp blades. The food slicer features a non-slip base for added stability and a soft touch grip for comfort. The clear container holds up to 1 cup of foods. The Microplane food slicer is dishwasher safe and comes with a scraper that is used to clean the blades and the grid.
